A woman washes clothing in a shallow bucket of water in Asanda Village - an informal shanty town settlement on the outskirts of Cape Town. Many of Cape Towns more poorer residents have pointed out that their communities - where residents don't generally own washing machines, dishwaters and swimming pools - are not the ones using large amounts of water and yet are being penalized more than the wealthier communities where many residents have put in expensive bore holes (wells) and are thus skirting water restrictions.
